User Help for Mozilla Thunderbird
I have been struggling for days with my thunderbird 3 html signature that has an image attached to it. I am referencing the image off of my computer locally and I have tried the <img moz-do-not-send="true"> as was suggested to put into the image tag, but it it just will not appear. It was never a problem in outlook express 6. Does anyone has a solution or a workaround for this issue? Thank you!
Did you create the signature in TB itself or with an external program?
I created the signature in a text document and then saved it as an html document. In the code I referenced the image where it is in a local folder on my computer (the absolute address).
Can I create an HTML signature with an image in TB itself? How would I do that?
Sometimes that doesn't work this way. Try to create it in Thunderbird and save it as html.
Go into the compose window, click into the message body, then on Insert, Image, Location and uncheck "attach this image to the message".
After inserting the URL of the image it must appear right now in the "image preview" below.[/quote]
Thanks for this. I'm not sure what you mean by, "it must appear right now in the image preview". I have tried pasting all the same html into the signature box for html in TB3 and it didn't work. I have also read the other post in the URL posted by the other person and it didn't work. I haven't tried the "Quote and Compose add on" referred to in the article though. I may do that. THANKS GUYS!
Yes, that doesn't work alwasy as I said.
Having inserted the last letter of the link into the item (image location) the image immediately appears in the "Image Preview" item below.
If not, there is something wrong and it won't work.
I don't know if I'm missing something but in my Thunderbird 3 when I go to "view settings for this account" and then check, "use html" the only thing I see is the text box to enter in html. I don't see a preview window.
Here is my image tag: <img moz-do-not-send="false" src="C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Dan's Docs\email signatures\MainIdentity.png
and of course I have it all between to html tags = <html> and </html>
Can there be spaces in folder names? I don't think that is a probelm though.
For creating a HTML-signature you must go into the compose window.
There to "Insert" then "image".
Oh, I got ya'. I didn't realize that an html signature could be added that way. Would I have to create a signature for every email, or will it be automatic at that point?
Thanks for all your help Bernd S. It worked to insert the image via that method, by inserting it in the compose window. I can put the html for the rest of the signature in "View Settings for this Account", and then insert the image to go along with it from the compose window, and it shows up every time. Then I can click, "Index Text (Move Right)" to line it up with the rest of the signature. It's pretty fast actually, and for now appears to be the best method for me, since I don't want to link to an image remotely.
But you wrote
Do you know what that means?
That means that TB doesn't attach an image file to the e-mail. You can use that tag only for remote images.
In this case TB expects a remote image with an URL.
I actually meant to write that my tag was <img moz-do-not-send="false"> when I wrote that earlier. So, either way ("true" or "false") is that tag with "moz-do-not-send" meant only for remote images? When I tried to attach an image from a local folder into my html code I had tried the <img src> tag with "moz-do-not-send" and also without it with no success.
